Hey, check out Vittorio Colaizzi’s (known to MWC old-timers as ‘vc’) essay from the travelling exhibit Placing Color. It’s dense, and beautiful. Here’s a quote: “… something else may have died with painting’s reinstatement in our radically permissive art world. This is the expectation that art should operate critically upon its own conventions, not in order to demolish itself, but to perpetually resuscitate and enliven our experience.”
I really wonder if the work is as good as the essay. Looks like the show is in Maryland now; then Boston, NYC and Winona, MN.
